Lia Sophia has been spotted draped around the necks and hanging on the arms of Katy Perry, Tyra Banks, Eva Longoria Parker and Shenae Grimes, as well as in the pages of Marie Claire, People Magazine and Teen Vogue.
No, Lia Sophia isn't the latest Hollywood starlet living in the fast lane. There's definitely a party element, though -- Lia Sophia is an increasingly popular jewelry line available through hostesses or advisors and home jewelry parties. Yes, much like Tupperware. But shinier, and way more versatile when it comes to your wardrobe.
Lia Sophia jewelry ranges from everyday pretty that starts at less than $20 CAN to red-carpet statement pieces that range from $110 to $1650. The extensive line of necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, bangles and cuffs includes glass and resin beads, vintage-inspired gold and silver, hammered metals, bold, modern pieces, and art-deco inspired designs. Updates to the catalogue collection are every six months; several Red Carpet collections come out each year. And everything has a lifetime guarantee.
Available in the US until only recently, Lia Sophia has expanded its network to Canada. Advisors can start up with $165 for training materials, catalogues and merchandise samples, and have access to additional support and training. But they don't have to buy their own inventory. They're also the only sales outlet for the jewelry; the company sells exclusively through their representatives -- as in not through TV, retailers or online.
